what chapter are we gonna talk about today, gang? what's it? what is it? begins with e. energy. how many people feel energy? how many people wish they had more? we'll be talking about such thing now. but before we talk about energy, i wanna talk about something that is somewhat related. we talked before about the idea of momentum. remember momentum? momentum is inertia in motion. and how do you get something moving if it's not moving? how do you change the momentum of something? you push on it, and you provide what's called an impulse. impulse, right? impulse is not only force. it's not how hard you push only that will tell you how much momentum change you'll get. it's how long you push. and we talked about how long in terms of time, didn't we? we said force multiplied by time would be numerically equal to. you multiply the force that you exert on something, huh? multiply it by the time that you exert on something, you get a numerical quantity. and that quantity is exactly equal to, not the momentum, but the change in momentum that you produce by pushing, huh? and so we talked about
. >> cut us off a little bit. >> david, let's talk about energy efficiency. i know fluorescent lights and bulbs are a big issues right now. people are changing old-style fluorescent bulbs. what's the old one, the new one and the savings? >> the standard of the industry were t-12. this was a four-foot lamp. the 12 stands for and and it's about four or five times more efficient than the typical incandescent light bulb. in the energy to increase energy efficiency. they have a more efficient standard. it's a two footer. it's called the t-8. it's half an inch in diameter. these are bi-pin fluorescent fixtures. these are 10, 15% for efficient than the older t-12. all of the fixtures bought now have the t-8. >> i understand they're going to stop making t-12 bulbs. >> it is scheduled for extinction. >> along the same lines, the city of san francisco is considering an ordinance to require the conversion from the old 212 to t-8 efficiency fixtures or higher. >> there are discussions. many of the large owners have gone to retrofits because there is a very good payback on it. the only commercial
hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organization. we're out there rebuilding the water system. we've budget working on power generation in the country. we've been doing sewer for the city. we're looking at a brand-new rebuild of all watt systems in san francisco and we haven't had a home that's been other than mental. >> they staff over 900 people. the puc is in two office locations. >> you know, this is such a great place for a building. if the puc owned that building and we could make that the icon i can sustainable building puc represents, wouldn't be a dramatic idea? >> so, one of the major decisions we made was we wanted to make a statement with this building. we wanted this building to be a lead
.s. economy. >> i think the u.s. economy is recovering. the job is recovering. the energy boom is helpful. the housing market has bottomed out and beginning to pick up. balance sheets, consumer balance sheetsz, business balance sheets are doing well and exports are doing well. >> how do we take that, the next step further? is it exports? open trade? >> i think there are -- all of these elms are important. from my point of view, the state department, exports are very important to the whole economy and to jobs because 95% of the world's consumer s live outside of united states so we're promoting american exports and ensure there are fair trading rules in the global system so it's not distorted by state subsidies or state enterprises. we're also making a major effort through the partnership trade negotiations and now the president announced negotiations with europe. that can open up new markets and provide new opportunities for american companies and we're trying to attract foreign investment in the united states, which does create a lot of jobs here. >> let me ask you about energy. all i he
of the governor's wind energy bill. this is the third general assembly that is considering the proposal. we have the latest. >> supporters hold something that bash hope something that looks like this will be in operation by 2017. and passages considered a done deal thanks to some political maneuvering. >> an advocate considers it a heaven sent former vergie. >> it will create jobs and create clean, sustainable energy and move our reliance away from oil and other energy sources that are not so great. >> the cast of characters urged legislators to pass the bill. the third time may be the charm. mike miller told supporters the bill is almost guaranteed to land on the governor's desk. making sure the legislation moves to the senate floor where the bill has 24 co-sponsors. >> will get through science committee and the sad enter the house. >> i feel like i am in trouble. griffey was 20 minutes late for a hearing on his own bill. the governor made his pitch. his bill establishes a regulatory framework creating an incentive for companies to invest in the wind farm off the coast of ocean city. >> this le
reduced competition could result in higher prices for travelers. >> well, higher energy prices in germany causing a controversy ahead of elections due to come up this september. angela merkel's government has presented plans to slow the rise. >> the plan involves limiting the surcharge consumers paid to support the expansion of renewable energy like wind and solar, but that could prove controversial. >> renewals like wind and solar now account for a quarter of the electricity produced in germany, but going green costs money. now the government plans to cap electricity costs both by cutting green energy subsidies and scrapping special allowances for industries that use large amounts of energy. >> we all know that price is not the only issue in germany's energy transition, but it is an important issue that has lots of people worried, so we have to give some answers. >> the government wants to keep prices stable by canceling a planned 2 billion euros increase to a green energy subsidy paid by consumers, but first, they have to convince opposition parties to go along with it. >> we cannot all

wouldn't they? this is a project that provides energy to our country when we very much need it. it's a project that will provide jobs, tens of thousands of jobs. we have 7.9% unemployment. we have 12 million people out of work. here's a project that won't cost the federal government one single penny but it creates tens of thousands of high-quality private-sector jobs. it's about economic growth. this is a \$7.9 billion project. the project over its life will create hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenue for state and local government as well as the federal government to help with our deficit and our debt without raising taxes. more tax revenue without raising taxes. and it's also about our energy security, energy security for america. instead of bringing in oil from the middle east, this is about working with our closest friend and ally, canada, to meet our energy needs. this pipeline will not only bring in canadian oil, however, it will also -- it also moves oil from my state of north dakota and from the state of montana to our refineries in places like texas and louisiana
be somebody to run the u.s. government. in this particular case it is energy secretary steven chew. i was there at the briefing that he gave today and he really went after the president. he said that he lacks the courage hearing lacks the guts to take the liberal side of the party and made his basic point that president obama would pursue and he does in his speech tonight, taxes on the rich, but unwilling to get tough on entitlements which, of course, is an anathema to the left wing of the party. >> while he has refused to agree to some to raise for example retirement for medicare but has agreed to reduce social security benefits by enacting a different method for cost of living increases. white house claims that he has put \$1.4 trillion cuts on the table. republicans don't agree all of those are cuts. it counts is savings from ending the wars if iraq and afghanistan, but the president will contend tonight that the country is much further along toward dealing with its spending program, dealing with its deficit problem than republicans will accept. we'll hear a different version of tha

, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. they'd devastate priorities like education, energy, and medical research. they would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. that's why democrats, republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea. now, some in this congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training, medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. and those of us who care deeply about programs like medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms -- otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations. but we can't ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the
